Who am I ?
Lets get one thing straight, I have never been in politics before. I dislike the adversarial nature of todays politics.
I live near Lea with my wife Joan.
I went to Art College.
Then I was in a band.
Then I was a painter and decorator.
Then I was a comedian/performer for 30 years.
I'm liberally minded, green in spirit,
and an independent soul.
I moved to Lea from Bristol in 2011
Since then I've been involved with various organisations around Ross.
I got asked, at the last minute, to stand in this
election for the Independents. Thought about it, and said yes ...and then I won!.
I started and run the 'whats on' website for Ross
I helped set up and was 1st chair of the Ross Tourist Association (RTA)
I am a founder member of 'createROSS'
I've been involved in creating and have performed at all of the past 3 'River Festivals' for the AONB
I recently set up the GreenRossNetwork facebook page (we have about 70 members at the moment -please join if enviromental issues are of interest)
I am looking forward to this new challenge. Hope to meet as many of you as I can in the next few years and can assure you that I will do my best for the beautiful area in which we all live
